I don't think the suggested change is aligned with the intent but there might be something we can do to improve the readability. 

"error codes" are used for normal operations when it comes to closing streams. So one interpretation of the current text is to say that if you get an unknown error code in a RESET_STREAM, don't treat it as any kind of error.  The suggested text "further error" confuses this interpretation.
